Innovating to Realize the Digital IDs of the Future

We are innovating in the field of biometrics and digital ID to address the current limitations when it comes to bridging digital divide, ease of use, privacy, security, and reducing total cost of ownership. 

Biometrics doesn’t exist in a vacuum, but is there to serve a purpose, which is all about identity. We believe that the future of biometrics is about Digital ID, when an identity is fully owned and managed by its holder and is biometrically verifiable and inclusive.

Our Team

TECH5 is founded and run by biometrics and ID industry pros who have played major roles in the world’s largest identity management programs, including India’s Aadhar program and the Indonesian National ID, and held senior posts with the largest players.

We have staff from 15+ nationalities, with a combined 500+ years of experience in biometric and secure ID program design and execution, including research, development, sales and marketing expertise.

Our Technologies and Platforms

We are innovators at heart and are continuously investing in research and development of our core technologies for biometric capture and matching, as well as biometric platforms based on these technologies, to provide the market globally with best-in-class products.

We are also innovating in the digital identity field in order for biometrics to play a key role in digital identity, by deriving cryptographic keys from biometrics, multifactor authentication in an offline manner, highly accurate but smaller footprint of biometric payload, revocable biometrics, and template protection.

All our technologies across three biometric modalities – face, fingerprint, and iris – are developed in-house with traditional and, most recently, based on AI/ML approaches. TECH5’s matching algorithms are among the fastest in the world, according to the latest NIST evaluation reports. These technologies result from years of research and new approaches in building algorithms.

All capture and matching platforms of TECH5 are based on our algorithms and are part of the key company offerings for contactless biometric capture, identification, digital biometric credential issuance, verification and authentication, playing a major role in all facets of our daily lives.

The Role of TECH5’s Technologies
TECH5 creates the biometric technologies that underpin all our transactions in an increasingly digital world.

These technologies are used by Governments and Enterprises for digital onboarding and enrollment, verification, identification and issuance of digital identities to their citizens and customers.

Providing core technology components suitable for any biometric-powered project allows TECH5 to address all vertical markets.
